  • New and Changed Features
    Show All Options of Feature
    For Configurable Item Maintenance, you can now specify whether to show all feature options or only available options.
    If Show All Options of Feature is Yes, the excluded options, which are not available to select, can be seen as dimmed.
    If Show All Options of Feature is No, you cannot see the excluded options.
    The Show All Options of Feature setting is also available for questionnaire customization. You can use this setting to facilitate diagnosing configuration errors. The default value of the setting is inherited from the setting in Configurable Item Maintenance.
    Customer Specific List Price
    For Configurable Item Maintenance, you can now control whether the price list for list price is customer-specific.
    If Customer Specific List Price is Yes, the price list for list price, which is created by the system, is based on the current customer.
    If Customer Specific List Price is No, the created price list for list price is general, not customer specific.
    The Customer Specific List Price setting only applies when Create a Price List is selected. By default, this setting is selected when Create a Price List is selected. Note that whether this setting is selected or not, the created price list for net price is always customer- specific.
    Enhancement for Browse Code
    When using the browse code in Variable Maintenance or Feature Maintenance, you can now specify as many as five parameters for the browse. The parameter can be a variable, a feature, or even a constant.
    Copy from Variable
    For Variable Maintenance, you can now use the Copy from Variable button to create a new variable. Enter the variable ID first, click the Copy From Variable button, and select a variable whose details you want to copy.
    Copy from Rule Table
    You can now use the Copy from Rule Table button to generate a rule table. Click the Copy from Rule Table button, and then select a rule table whose rules you want to copy. After the new rule table is generated, you can edit the table to get the rules that you need.
    Validate Orphaned Rule and Delete Orphaned Rule
    You can now delete orphaned rules by selecting the Validate Orphaned Rule and Delete Orphaned Rule options. Currently, the options are only for product structure (BOM) rules and not for routing rules.
    Using Custom Functions in Product Configuration Rules
    Previously custom functions are only available for some product configuration rules. Now custom functions are available for all product configuration rules.
    Performance Enhancements for Configuration Rebuild

    There has been significant time reduction in rule execution and thus improved questionnaire processing performance.
